Subject(s): Jesus Christ


O Jesus! at Thy feet we wait,
Till Thou shalt bid us rise;
Restored to our unsinning state--
To love's sweet paradise.

Saviour from sin, we Thee receive;
From all indwelling sin
Thy blood, we steadfastly believe,
Shall make us throughly clean.

Since Thou wouldst have us free from sin,
And pure as those above;
Make haste to bring Thy nature in,
And perfect us in love.

The counsel of Thy love fulfill;
Come quickly, gracious Lord!
Be it according to Thy will,
According to Thy word.

O that the perfect grace were given,
Thy love diffused abroad:
O that our hearts were all a heaven,
Forever fill'd with God.
